Default Line X dark spots

Had you guys spray my T-top a couple of years ago and now I have a bunch of dark spots all over it. I have tried everything possible to remove them, nonskid cleaner, power washer, bleach and even had the professionals detailing it try and nothing seems to work? Do you have any suggestions on what would work??

You have probably hit it with straight Chlorine, from a spray bottle and let it sit? Just asking

Did you have that done with LineX in Sarasota? Was it the Ultra product sprayed?

man I wish I had something good to tell you but I don't. had my t-top and deck sprayed with line-x from the same place and it turned out to be a complete disaster. it was a total nightmare. couldn't keep it clean to save my life. tried everything you can imagine to clean it and the only thing that got the staining off was a pressure washer. problem with that was it etched the line-x and it wasn't the same color anymore. the only way I would every line-x anything on a boat ever again would be to go with black or some other very dark color. highly doubt I would ever do it again tho. very disappointed in my experience with it to say the least......

i can definitely understand your feelings on it. I went with the White because they sold me on the ultra and how great it was. After having LineX in my truck forever I thought it was worth the shot. However that is black and this is not. It would be nice if they chimed in with any suggestions.

I specifically said to them the only reason I was looking into getting it done was ease of cleaning. I got told the same thing you did. Super easy to clean, won't stain, is the same color all the way through the material and on and on. What I got was the total opposite of everything I was told.

I wish you the best of luck. I never got any solutions at all. That was a few years ago though. Hopefully they have some new info that will solve your problem.
